I have to wonder about something:

Would we have Foo Fighters and New Order if the lead singers of their original bands, Nirvana and Joy Division, hadn’t killed themselves? 55 more words


Obsession Suite 1: Closer//Joy Division

Joy Division are a band immersed in the mythic and the macabre. The legacy of frontman Ian Curtis’ suicide hangs ominously over their work all these decades later, and invests his lyrics and his music with a sense of morbid foreboding. 812 more words

Entry 0017: In the Age of Ice Burns the Creative Sun

LP: Heart and Soul by Joy Division

2004 Fractured Music FAC 204, bootleg

First Listen Review: Motorama - "Poverty"

I fell in love with Motorama because it was the perfect band for the winter time of year. Perhaps it was stereotyping for me, but listening to a Russian band seemed quintessential due to the country being known for snow. 179 more words


Taylor Swift - Corporate Whore

Always danger,
Endless talking,
Life rebuilding,
Don’t walk away.
